But youth-for-age never leads to good results. Just look at Toronto.
Ignoring for a moment the fact that those three trades (along with the others from that year, obviously) led directly to a Stanley Cup... Maybe Amonte scores in OT in Game 7 of the ECF and maybe Marchant wins the final faceoff of Game 7 of the SCF... but you can't say those things for sure.

The Zubov trade was ridiculous, as was the Norstrom for a defensive F. At least the other deals from 1994 made hockey sense... those? They didn't.
